asymmetric breasts, or have experienced breast volume loss

When you meet for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Blau
about breast augmentation at his Westchester, New York plastic
surgery practice, you will feel comfortable to address any
question you have relating to breast enhancement and have
the opportunity to expand on the following information, including:
Breast Augmentation Evaluation:
Dr. Blau will evaluate your
breasts to help decide on the best approach to the procedure
at his Westchester based location. Some breast augmentation
candidates learn that they can achieve a satisfactory outcome
with simply breast augmentation, others may also require
a breast lift, and still others may find the both the breast
augmentation and breast lift are required to fully improve
the appearance of the breasts.
Breast Implant Choices:
Breast implants come on a variety
of sizes and shapes. There are two types of breast implants
that can be used in the breast augmentation procedure, silicone
or saline. Saline implants offer undisputable long standing
FDA approval, easy diagnosis for leak or rupture through
implant deflation and a comparatively less expensive mammography
requirement for the detection of breast cancer. Silicone
implants may provide for a more natural look and feel, but
there is no obvious deflation in cases of leak or rupture,
and an MRI requirement.
Breast Augmentation Breast Lift Combination:
candidates may be best served with a breast augmentation
breast lift combination procedure in certain cases. The breast
lift addresses concerns with breast droopiness, sagging and
tubular breast appearances. The breast lift performed in
Connecticut, New York and New Jersey is often beneficial
for women that have lost massive weight, mothers and older
women. Dr. Blau is among a select number of plastic surgeons
who can perform both procedures at the same time because
of his many years of experience with breast augmentation
breast lift patients.
Breast Enhancement Revision Surgery:
revision surgery is described as the replacement breast implants.
Over the course of a lifetime, breast implants age and may
require replacement. In some cases, breast implants leak
or rupture and require substitution. A second breast augmentation
may be performed because of other complications with the
first procedure as well. Silicone breast augmentation patients
are advised to exchange breast implants every seven to ten
years. The beauty in breast revision surgery is that Dr.
Blau can often use the same incision to slip the breast implant
out and exchange the breast implant with a new one. This
procedure may be performed general anesthesia or under IV
sedation and local anesthesia. Often, breast revision surgery
offers a speedier recovery when compared with an initial
Breast Augmentation Incisions:
There are a variety of incision
location choices; including under the arm pit, the natural
crease at the below the breast, and the nipple. The most
common incision location at Dr. Blauís practice is
a nipple incision that is approximately one inch long and
is inconspicuously masked by the edge of the areola line.
If a breast lift is also being performed at the same time,
Dr. Blau can often use the same incision to perform the breast
lift. Breast revision surgery may utilize the same incision
as well. The breast augmentation is performed under general
anesthesia and the recovery period is up to two weeks time.
Breast Implant Placement and Procedure:
It is best to have
breast augmentation at a fully accredited facility and most
patients prefer general anesthesia. Breast implants may be
placed above or below the muscles, depending upon your own
personal anatomy and preference. During a breast augmentation
procedure, an incision is made, commonly at the nipple in
Dr. Blauís practice, so that a breast implant can be
placed above or below the muscles. If an inflatable breast
implant is being used, it will be placed in a deflated form
upon entry to the body and inflated once it is in place.
The procedure may require two hours or more hours of time
and breast augmentation patients can usually return to work
within ten days. Rare complications that may result following
breast augmentation include infection, capsular contraction,
and reaction to anesthesia. Most breast augmentation patients
feel very good by three days after the procedure.
